Hello Chickie

Happy Tuesday to you! 

Last week I spent some time going through all my 12x12 paper stacks in my closet. 

So often I remember seeing a paper I want to use and then spend what feels like forever in frustration looking for it. 

I decided that was getting ridiculous, so I pulled out every stack and sorted them by either theme or company. Stacked them on the awesome wall shelves my husband put up for me a couple of years ago, and then put labels on the wall for what was in that stack on that shelf. For example: Hobby Lobby, DCWV, K&Co, Christmas, Halloween, and one sign that said, "The thin stuff." LOL  

I ended up with 14 different signs and categories all spread out on my shelves. 

It's so much better now to find what I want and I don't have to keep going through what I don't want to get to it.  

Plus, I re-discovered so many gorgeous papers I had forgotten I had. The card below is from a paper pack and kit (flowers, stamps, stickers, tags, and papers) that is so pretty. I couldn't wait to use it on something. So glad I re-discovered this pack.
